The retail store is undergoing a fundamental transition as digital and mobile reshape how consumers shop. Although the pathway to the hearts, minds and wallets of the consumer has changed, stores are by no means dead. The brick-and-mortar store is enjoying a resurgence as retailers discover that this might be the last place where they can still grab the full attention of today’s highly distracted consumer. With even online pure-plays now venturing into the brick-and-mortar world, revisiting the role, functions and capabilities of the physical store in this new era is overdue. Enter the Smart Digital Store, an innovative framework of integrated solutions that joins in-store and online customer, employee, and product specifics with the physical store to help retailers define, accelerate, and sustain their digital transformation journey, quickly, efficiently and in lock-step with their particular needs.

Bring Your Value Proposition to Life
